JOSM validation - what to do...

Posted by ConsEbt on 22 September 2011 in English (English)

Hi all,
when I want to upload my changeset JOSM validator gave me 2 warnings.
I have no idea what they are referring to...
Had a look at http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/JOSM/Validator which does not list the warning I have.

See http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/840/josm20110923075614.png/ for a screenshot.

Can anyone help me resolve the warning? It is realted to a relation/bus route I've created based on http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Relation:route#Bus_Routes_.28also_trolley_bus.29

Location: Teneriffe, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

Members are the parts(ways/roads) that make up a relation, and you can specify what type of member it will be. The JOSM validator thinks that members should have a type specificed(the type/role box not be empty for each one), which is perhaps logical. But for bus routes there are no member types, just standard members.
So what do you do? Just click ignore, that's what I do.

An example of a relation that shouldn't have empty members is street(address) relations. http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Relations/Proposed/Street#Tags You can see in the list of members, you want to specific if it is of the house or street type. If you uploaded a street relation and some members didn't have a type/role, then the validator should rightly stop/question you.

I think I am right on this whole comment anyway.

My experience is that the error you're is seeing is because of nodes in the relation that don't have a role. Only ways are allowed to be blank.

According to the documentation of the route relation nodes are expected to have the stop role (or a variation such as forward:stop)

See: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Relation:route#Members

If you aren't editing the relations by purpose just leave the warnings alone. Probably it is not your fault. Just save your changeset.

Ups, sorry, forget my last comment. I missed the part that it is your own bus route relation ...
